Second marriage

Q: I have a question about second marriage? I wanted to marry second wife but my first wife refused and told me to divorce her first. I want to know what’s the ruling on that from Allah Ta’ala.


A: A marital life is supposed to be a life of happiness and understanding. If you fear that you will not enjoy a life of happiness then you rather separate from the wife that feels that she will not be able to cope.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
